If you rested your powder-cised jelly legs yesterday and missed the sunshine you're in luck because we get to hit repeat today through Thursday.  Back-to-back sunny days are ahead of us as we ski and ride on packed powder surfaces.


Temperatures will continue to get warmer as the week progresses but today will be another good test (or excuse) to wear those new facemasks and extra layers.  Looks like we have another storm developing over the weekend with the forecast suggesting 2-4 inches Saturday night through Sunday.  Great news for our NEK Sunday ticket deal.


Snowmaking wrapped up mid-morning yesterday and moved back up to Upper Warren's Way and Graham Slam.  As we continue to resurface those trails training will be moved to Big Dipper.  Skiers and riders will see Giant Slalom gates setup and are asked to avoid that area until the racers are finished, approx 12:30pm.  Take East Bowl to Upper Powerline to access Powderhorn and Wilderness, or enjoy the views of the Presidentials via East Bowl which will also be open.  Visit our grooming/trail page for the full report.


Lifts load daily from 9am-4pm and tickets can be purchased at multiple locations including our main ticket office in the Sherburne Base Lodge, both retail stores Trailside (base lodge) and Vertical Drop (Hotel), as well as the Hotel front desk.  Today and every non-holiday Tuesday Silver Streakers (ages 55+) can purchase tickets for just $35/per person.


Adult clinics are back and start this Friday, Jan 25th & Sat, Jan 26th.  Join us Friday from 9-11am or Saturday 10am-12noon for both Men & Women sessions.  Just $35/per person.  Click here for complete details or contact our Snowsports Learning Center at (802) 626-7348.


Thanks for reading, we look forward to seeing you soon. "

The VAST Trail Report for  the NEK



Mother Nature has graced much of the state with new snow this week with some additional accumulations expected through the weekend.  The new snow has enabled many clubs to move the grooming equipment once again and reopen trails for the season.


Riding opportunities exist in the Northeast Kingdom, Groton, Central Vermont, Woodford and Chittenden area.  We expect other trail sections to open up throughout the weekend and into next week as the new snow is groomed out by the VAST fleet.  Many clubs are waiting until the weekend storm to head out so keep this in mind.


Riders should stay off trails until grooming equipment has passed through and the club has opened the trails on the interactive map.


Early season conditions exist throughout the system at this time, meaning open water, mud open water bars, exposed rocks and other hazards present in the trail at all times.


Caution, Common Sense and a light throttle thumb are necessary.


Please check back for updates or view the trail closures and alerts below or on the map as well.
